Girl on the Bottom, Girl on the Top
Remember how we’re right all the time about everything?
See, the most damning criticism of Anna’s work here is also in a strange way, its saving grace.
It’s not actually a bad garment, all things considered. Don’t shoot us for saying this, but: picture this on a size 2.
Stop yelling at us! We’re just saying what’s true here. This would be an almost-cute dress if it had been designed for someone much smaller and younger. Granted, she could have edited out a half dozen of the design elements too.
But the point is, we think that’s what saved her from going home before Jesus. The judges could see that at least this dress was designed, even if it was designed for the wrong person. Jesus’ dress was just a bunch of tacky cliches.
It’s not that dress is terrible. We do like the straps and the treatment at the neckline.
But those stars, kittens. Maybe we’re just all dragged up, what with RuPaul’s Drag Race back on the blog, but this just looks like a well-made drag queen costume. We can’t imagine a real woman actually wearing something like this to a gala event, unless that woman is Wonder Woman, of course.
We defended the judges loving her track suit of last week because it was bold and graphic and editorial. Well, she’s still working with the bold and graphic, but like every design element, it’s about how you use it. We just don’t think this usage is particularly sophisticated.
